1: How the Queen Escaped Death By: Erin McGowan
2: "Here ye, here ye! I present you with your new queen, Queen Elizabeth!" The jester says followed by loud claps and cheers as the young queen enters the room. The crown is placed on her head and now knows she is a monarch which she was happy about considering it was the late 800's. Next she is handed a map that says,"SAFTY MAP".
3: After the ceremony the queen went up to her room to rest for the night. The next morning she was served her first royal meal in bed. As she was eating in her bed she saw the map siting on her dresser, so she grabbed it and started to read it. She got to see where all of the gun ports, dungeons, and murder holes were. It also showed how to work the lifted bridge.
4: Then all of a sudden she herd war drums! She looks out her window and sees an army of vikings sprinting to the castle! She ran down the stairs and told the knights. Then some of them started to bring up the lifted bridge while the vikings were stuck in the mote. The others try to get the queen out of the castle and away from the vikings, but Queen Elizabeth says," No! I can't leave my poor citizens to get killed by the vikings." The knights tried to tell her that they need to keep her safe, but she wouldn't leave her people.
6: The knights gave her the armor so she could be protected. They told her to report to one of the murder holes. As she was there she was told that the vikings are still stuck in the grassy mote but they gave her melted lead to pour through the murder hole when a viking or vikings walked under it.
7: Then all of a sudden she hears screaming and then a knight came and said,"They are trying to get through the lifted bridge!" The queen gets ready for what is about to happen. Then BAM! she heard people fighting and getting killed which made her terrified.
8: She started to think how much safer she would be if she were at on of the archer loops,but she is stuck at the murder holes. All she could do is wait for someone to walk under her murder hole. Every second that went by she got even more scared. She has been sitting at her murder hole for over 30 minutes.
9: As even more time went by. Still fighting and war is going on. She starts to try and picture in her head what the castle looks like based on all the fighting that is going on. She pictures the lifted bridge smashed to pieces, men dead on the floor,and all of the important things in the castle gone. She wants to kill one of those vikings so bad after her picturing the castle after the war.
10: As she is trembling in fear. she hears two vikings walking cautiously though the halls of the castle. Getting closer and closer till she can just see them. Then she dumps some of the melted led on them. The led got in their eyes. Since they couldn't see a knight comes and kills them no problem. As she is looking at the dead enemy she hears one of the knights fighting the vikings. By the sounds she is hearing she can tell that her knights are losing, so she leaves her position to go help her knights.
11: When she gets there she sees that there only three knights and four vikings remaining. As she is running into the room with her sword ready she is thinking of how much danger she just got herself in to. Once she kills one viking nothing can stop her. Her and the knights defeat the vikings! After a few years the kingdom is back to normal. THE END
